The O Factor. Get a number plate you can be proud of

The last person to officially have the O factor was a mystery buyer. Paying a mere ?87,853, they secured themselves the registration number plate 5 0 at the last auction held at Dormy House Hotel.

If I allowed myself to speculate for a minute, I could think of a few potential famous people that may have been the lucky bidder, with a certain X Factor judge who celebrated his 50th birthday recently being a favourite. Anyway, speculation aside, the O series, which DVLA released to mark their 20th anniversary, has been a huge hit with the total for 1 0, 2 0, 3 0, 4 0 and 5 0 raising an impressive ?566,344. Along with the big 5 0 number plate being auctioned, 1600 others were sold raising a total of ?4.28 million, breaking the record for any DVLA auction held to date.

The number plate 5 0 is a headline number plate, and even at ?87,853 it could be seen as an investment for the future. Yes, we buy number plates for love of making a statement, but they are also a sound financial investment with returns outperforming standard ways of saving for many years now.

The last DVLA public sale of the year is to be held in Barnsley, North Yorkshire, and will feature the next number in the 0 Series: 6 0. So, if you have a (good) few thousand pounds to spend and you or someone you know is about to celebrate their 60th, what better present could there be? Of course, you could think outside the box if you fail to find any looming 60th birthdays.

Thinking outside the box, sixty could relate to the year you were born, the house number you live at, the amount of years you’ve been married or, even more laterally, your favourite brand (Miss Sixty), your favourite sport (Darts – 60 being the highest possible score with a single dart), your favourite game (Chinese Checkers – 60 being the maximum number of game pieces on the board) or anything else you may find the number sixty being relevant to for you.

Alternatively, contact a specialised number plate provider, as there is a vast array of private number plates out there to fit any budget you may have, even if it doesn’t stretch to having the ‘O Factor’.
